Donald Trump called a top Wisconsin election official last week, nearly two years after the 2020 presidential election, to try and convince him to decertify President Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
Robin Vos, the speaker of the Wisconsin State Assembly, said Trump brought up the subject of decertifying Biden’s win after the July 8 Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling that barred the use of most ballot drop boxes in the state.
“It’s very consistent,” Vos told WISN. “He makes the case, which I respect. He would like us to do something different in Wisconsin. I explained it’s not allowed under the Constitution.”
Trump then posted on his social media app ‘Truth Social’ attacking Vos for not decertifying Biden’s win in the state.
“Looks like Speaker Robin Vos, a long time professional RINO always looking to guard his flank, will be doing nothing about the amazing Wisconsin Supreme Court decision,” Trump wrote. “The Democrats would like to sincerely thank Robin, and all of his fellow RINOs, for letting them get away with ‘murder.'”
Trump issued another statement on Tuesday threatening to primary Vos if he did not act on the state Supreme Court ruling.
“So what’s Speaker Robin Vos doing on the Great Wisconsin Supreme Court Ruling declaring hundreds of thousands of Drop Box votes to be illegal? This is not a time for him to hide, but a time to act!” Trump said. “I don’t know his opponent in the upcoming Primary, but feel certain he will do well if Speaker Vos doesn’t move with gusto. Robin, don’t let the voters of Wisconsin down!”
Vos praised the Supreme Court ruling and called drop boxes “illegal“. He was also one of the top election officials who enabled Trump after the election by peddling conspiracy theories and supported his baseless allegations that there was widespread fraud in the presidential election.
